. but ed lavandera, straight to you, you're the one here in dallas with some of this information on what was this a meeting with livestrong, a face to face, what did he say? >> reporter: well, the headquarters for the livestrong foundation is in austin, texas, not far from where lance armstrong lives. it was just a head of this interview we were told by a representative there with livestrong foundation that lance armstrong came over to the headquarters, about midday today, and offered his apology to the staff there. so you can take that to mean what we probably, i think the world expects now at this point, suggesting that lance armstrong is apologizing for perhaps lying about using performance enhancing drugs over the last 12, 13, 14, 15 years that he was in racing and winning the seven tour de france titles as well. so kind of a significant moment there. i don't have a lot of details as to exactly what was said or how it was said or what the mood was in the room. we'll continue working on all of that, but all of this in anticipation of the interview which we suspect will be taking place
